About the webcast

Have you ever wished you could look over a Bible translator’s shoulder as he or she worked? The New English Translation (NET) offers you this Bible reading experience: pairing a readable, everyday English translation with the largest set of translators’ notes ever created for a Bible.

In this webcast with the Project Director and Managing Editor of the NET Bible, Dr. Hall Harris will discuss why a group of leading biblical linguists decided to tackle the monumental work of a ground-up new Bible translation over 20 years ago.

Dr. Harris reveals the breakthrough decisions they made that add depth and perspective, and unparalleled access to the choices and tradeoffs translators have been making for centuries as they’ve faithfully converted the ancient Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts into current English. No matter what your favorite translation is, you’ll want to hear this conversation about this important contribution to biblical literacy.
